Hi there! I'm Arian. I graduated from Wesleyan University with degrees in English and Environmental Studies, with a focus on creative writing. For my senior thesis, I wrote a 50-page epic poem that intertwined the geobiological evolution of the earth with my family history.
I've been tutoring intermittently since my freshman year of high school--from one-on-one, subject-specific tutoring to coaching my high school speech team to teaching saxophone lessons at an arts center to leading writing workshops for disenfranchised boys at the Juvenile Detention Center near my university.
I believe that anyone can learn anything as long they approach it from the ground up. As such, I strive to ensure students understand material at a foundational and conceptual level before advancing into specifics. Furthermore, I believe the learning process should be as exciting and collaborative as possible, and that each lesson should be tailored to a student's particular learning styles and needs.
Bottom line, I love working with people and helping them grasp intimidating concepts. Learning should be exhilarating, and I always try to facilitate that thrill. I welcome feedback from my students and their parents, because I want to be the best tutor I can be for each individual I'm working with. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have or to schedule a lesson.
